BRICK – Drum Point Road is in the running for a grant that would provide new athletic equipment at the school.
Danimals, the kids brand of yogurt sold by Dannon, is offering a $25,000 grant for outdoor physical education equipment. All Drum Point has to do is muster enough votes to win it, officials said.
In order to gather support, the district is reaching out to parents, community leaders, and the media to get the word out.
It would benefit more than just the students, the district said. The equipment would be installed behind the school and available to the community after school hours.
The winning school will be picked based on the number of votes received. The four schools with the most on-line votes will win the grant.
The school is asking parents and community members to vote during the period from Feb. 2 through Feb. 28.
In order to vote, you must be 13 and older and have an email address. A zip code is required as only voters living in New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Connecticut, Maryland, and Pennsylvania will be counted.
The district asked that community members vote online and then share this on social media to promote it.
Beachwood Elementary School is also competing for the grant. To vote, visit danimalsshopriteschoolcontest.young-america.com.
(Note: The contest voting doesn’t open until Feb. 2.)
